BMA ‘s newest addition is a vessel designed for those who want to have fun and spend a few days at sea in complete tranquility. At 9.10 meters long (and 1.90 meters wide), the BMA X299 will be the longest boat in the range and winks at both those who want to use the boat with friends and families, thanks to its four berths.

What a boat the BMA X299 will be

The Italian shipyard BMA, part of the Ribitaly and “brother” of BWA, which manufactures inflatable boats, entrusted the firm of Carlos Vidal Design the design of this new model The BMA X299 has a length of just over nine meters (9.10,) and a width of just under three meters (2.90m) with special care devoted to fittings and interiors. The soul of the new BMA is distinctly cruiser-like. In fact, despite its small size, four berths comfortably fit on board the BMA X299: two are those in the forward owner’s cabin, the other two are in the owner’s dinette. In fact, aft we find the table and two additional comfortable sleeping places, with separate bathroom room with nautical toilet and sink. The interiors are spacious and well-maintained, with special attention paid to the utilization of space for lockers and storage lockers.

On deck, in the aft cockpit, we find comfortable L-shaped seating around the table, while the central cabinet housing the refrigerator supports the two stand-up stations for pilot and co-pilot. At the side of the console we find the ladder for descending below deck, and passing to the bow of the command area, thanks to the two convenient side passages, we find the large sundeck.
